From the Library: Midsummer/Moon

Today on Radio Riel, Elrik Mer­lin presents an exten­sive col­lec­tion of songs about, or con­nect­ed with, the Moon, and with the Sum­mer Sol­stice, which will be with us in a few days’ time.

The gen­res range from the Baroque to Rock (of the lighter kind, by and large) to folk, New Age and jazz (both smooth and tra­di­tion­al styles are rep­re­sent­ed, with quite a dash of big band). There are also some sur­pris­es, as is typ­i­cal for an Elrik Mer­lin pro­gramme, and some­times the link to the theme is a lit­tle, ah, extend­ed. Yes, it’s anoth­er one of Mr Mer­lin’s “Sat­ur­days Become Eclec­tic” shows.

Then at 11am and 7pm Pacif­ic Time, that’s 7pm and 3am in the UK, don’t miss the final episodes of our two clas­sic radio seri­als in the ZBS Radio Hour — first The Fourth Tow­er of Inver­ness, fol­lowed by Ruby, the Galac­tic Detec­tive, brought to you cour­tesy of our friends at Lis­ten-in at home – or join us in the beau­ti­ful Cale­don Con­ser­va­to­ry for a cup of tea (

While you’re lis­ten­ing, check out the new ZBS Sum­mer Cat­a­log (3MB PDF down­load)! It’s full of amaz­ing stuff — includ­ing the lat­est Steam­punk series. Like what you see? Hop on over to and pick them up!

Next week in the same slot, we’ll be start­ing two new series — more details on the air from Mon­day and here in the Pro­gramme Guide lat­er in the week.
